Recently featured in the December Fly Crate Membership, we recommended this as a go-to searching pattern. When natural-looking imitations leave you fish-less, give the Rainbow Warrior a go. Here is a snip-it from the original tier, Lance Egan. “…Finally I put on a Rainbow Warrior. Three of these flies turned my 8ish-fish day into a 40-fish day. I kept one of the flies unharmed to ensure I could duplicate them! The warrior has since become one of my go-to patterns. I’ve taken fish on it from New Zealand to Alaska. It works surprisingly well in all water conditions, yes even in clear water; I know it is too flashy, but it works.” ~ Trout Legend Website
One of the most successful searching fly patterns for trout, the Tungsten Rainbow Warrior Midge fly pattern combines a tungsten bead with a bit of flash to produce spectacular results.
